Seen in the bottom of a recent Stern machine!
You can't blame them.
All those mods make their games look look like a ToysRUs holocaust.
I put aftermarket bulbs in my cars headlights and a year later a harness burned up, they didnt want to cover either.
Looks like a get out of jail card for Stern with all the mods people add to games these days.
I get the lawyering-up in theory, but realistically, how would Stern know if a (removable) mod was the culprit for any issues?
Quoted from Spelunk71:
As..uh..interesting..as that is, I was thinking more along the lines of an after-market shaker motor or speaker light kit!
All Stern has to do is put some surface mount fuses on those circuit boards.
When your mods draw too much current, they will know you have been taxing the circuit beyond it's intended design.
Quoted from spfxted:
Doesn't say it will void warranty.....
It doesn't matter. Any manufacturer can usually void a limited warranty if unauthorized use or modification can be proven to have caused a damage or defect. I'd bet that if you modify something even if doesn't have this specific statement and then try to get warranty coverage, good luck...better hire a lawyer.
That owners manual statement I posted is not a warranty document, either, it's just a safety warnng in the manual
